One small step for women, one giant leap for mankind.


Oct. 11 marked a proud day in the history of Saudi women. In partnership with the Ministry of Health and the General Sports Authority and under the sponsorship of Princess Reema bint Bandar, The Mazda Cup, an all-women sporting event, was held for the first time at the King Abdullah Sports City (Al Jawhara Stadium). “It was a great success thanks to all the collaborative efforts of our partners and sponsors” commented Diena Aref, founder of Shoot For a Cause. ssak9674

Three teams faced off in a basketball game with participants from different schools and universities with intervals of sport segments that included the audience’s participation.

The purpose of the event was to spread awareness on breast cancer and general health for women. Health booths were spread around the stadium halls endorsing health and check-ups.ssak0977
